Review! The Rosemary Spell by Virginia Zimmerman

Rosemary-coverThe Rosemary Spell

By Virginia Zimmerman

280 pages – ages 12+

Published by Clarion Books on December 1, 2015

Synopsis- When Rosemary and her best friend Adam discover an old journal in Rosemary’s house, they didn’t think much of it. Until they read a line from it out loud, and Adam’s older sister just disappears from existence. Now Rosemary and Adam must race against time to get her back, before she is gone – and forgotten – forever.

What I Thought- This was a really suspenseful book, with a lot going on. I couldn’t put the book down, and read it within a day or two. This is Ms. Zimmerman’s first novel in a genre like this, and she does a great job of drawing the reader into the story. Rosemary is a believable character, and one that the reader will sympathize with. The story is more that a great fantasy, it is a very thought-provoking book. It makes you wonder what it would be like to forget a loved one forever – have their memory fade as if they never existed. I enjoyed how Zimmerman intertwined Shakespeare within the story. The book is rated as YA but middle grade readers will enjoy this. At 280 pages, it is a quick story but it feels complete. Very cool cover too.

I give this book five out of five bookworms!fivebooks

    I read this review and my mind filled with images of poor Bing Bong.
